Brave Merida Cosplay

Merida-Cosplay

Pixar’s Brave made a splash with the memorable Merida. Like or dislike the film, you probably noticed and remembered Merida’s wild red hair and her stubborn attitude. Cosplayer Lauren, a.k.a. Aretsaya, channeled some of Merida’s traits for her cosplay. She made every aspect of the costume from the wig to the bow. As you can imagine, crafting a Merida-worthy wig is quite the undertaking — so much of the outfit is about the hair. Lauren explained her process on Reddit:

I made the wig from the following
Base orange lace front from WigIsFashion 2 x cheaper long wigs from ebay in a darker orange and muted red 6 x weft packs (100 inches each) from Coscraft in a few different oranges/reds
I removed all the wefts from the two other wigs and cut all the remaining hair into 2-3 inch sections, folded in half and secured and then curled. I did this with the extra wefts too.
I then had a massive bag of extra curls and hand sewed each one into the base wig with the darker colours underneath… In total it was probably an extra 800 odd inches of hair sewn into the base wig.
I then added extra wig clips to hold it and that and the lace glue and it didn’t budge all day

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
